Player Value Rankings (PVR)

We ranked the NFL's offensive backs, receivers, kickers and
return specialists from 1 (the best) to 500, based on our
projections of their statistical production this season. The
categories considered were scoring (touchdowns, field goals,
extra points), long scoring plays (25 yards or more), big-game
potential (300 yards passing, or 100 yards rushing or receiving)
and passing efficiency. We also took into account each player's
stats from previous seasons, as well as his role on his current
team, his prospects for improving or declining, his injury
history and his current physical condition. Using these
criteria, we determined each player's value rating, or PVR,
which appears next to his name in his team's lineup.
